Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Pork Loin

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by MarieRynr

Wrapping the pork in bacon adds a smoky flavor to the pork helps to keep the pork moist while cooking. I am nuts about cinnamon anything and find the flavor goes very well with pork.

This was yummy! Some changes I made: used olive oil (didn't have peanut oil), used coriander (had no cilantro), used dried mint (had no fresh), and used a pork tenderloin (that's what was in the freezer!) Roasted it for 45 minutes and it was perfect. Will definitely make this again. Thanks. :D
